Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells
Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells were infused to patients using interventional method via hepatic artery. After the catheter placed at proper hepatic artery was confirmed by angiography,umbilical cord MSCs were infused slowly for 15-20minutes.
Biological: umbilical cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells were infused to patients using interventional method via hepatic artery. After the catheter placed at proper hepatic artery was confirmed by angiography,umbilical cord MSCs were infused slowly for 15-20minutes.
Other Name: Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Active Comparator: Conserved therapy
Patients received comprehensive treatment including antiviral drugs, lowering aminotransferase and jaundice medicine.
Drug: Conserved therapy
Oral or intravenous administration
Other Name: Drug therapy

Detailed Description:

To investigate the efficacy of umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) infusion via hepatic artery in the treatment of liver cirrhosis. Patients with liver cirrhosis were randomly separated into two groups. Umbilical cord MSCs were infused to patients using interventional method via hepatic artery for One group. After the catheter placed at proper hepatic artery was confirmed by angiography, umbilical cord MSCs were infused slowly for 15-20minutes. The control group accepted conserved therapy.
